My elect shall long enjoy
the work of their hands.
They shall not labor in vain.
-Isaiah 65:22-23

This is a mighty promise God declares to us as His scribes. We do not labor in vain! God promises that we shall find joy in the journey–so why not choose to enjoy our pathway today? Let’s determine to enjoy the work that is before us right now, regardless of any lack of affirmation we might feel. Come on, beloved scribe! Let’s do what we can to make our long enjoyment even longer and rejoice today in our labors.

Dear God, thank You for this great and mighty promise. What an anchor of hope this is to me to cling to! Thank You for encouraging me and reminding me that my labor is not in vain. In Jesus’s name. Amen.
